We usually save going to Truluck's for a special occasion, or a splurge night. It is the most expensive restaurant in the area. Last night it took us over 2.5 hours to get out of there. I believe our entrees were served at the 2...More

Visit Dallas 4-5 times a year. This is the 1 restaurant that we always go to. It's also probably the 1st. Great food. Service top notch. Great wine selection. A bit pricey.

Questions & Answers
My only question is, how on earth does this restaurant get such rave reviews (for the most part)? These 4-5 star reviewers must have never experienced a truly fine dining experience in a restaurant. Yes, the atmosphere was nice even though noisy and the server was very good but the food was generally mediocre at best, the drinks were weak (especially for $10) and the food prices were high. We had eaten at the Trulucks in Addison, TX twice. We went back the second time only because we thought we had been there the first time on an "off night" and it deserved another try. The second visit was still disappointing so we never went back. Our visit to the Grapevine, TX location was based on a recommendation and the overwhelmingly positive reviews. The restaurant in Addison closed and it was in the heart of restaurant row there. Perhaps that happened as results from just ok food and drinks combined with significant overpricing.
